Head over to Ashley's Etsy shop to see lots more. He's offering a special deal at the moment too where you can get a free print when you order two. The only dilemma will be choosing!

So we finally jetted off to Lanzarote when I was 24 weeks. A bigger bump than I was expecting to take on a flight and along to the beaches but it was perfect timing for us in the end. 'Twas lovely to get away, just the two (and a bit) of us and escape work, emails and moving hassles for a week. We even took Bump on a camel ride!
Lanzarote was recommended to us by a few friends and was lovely. A nice balance of beaches but also cool places to explore. We hired a car which I really think is essential there if you want to make the most of the island. It was smaller than I'd expected and we nipped all around the place discovering lovely little coves and restaurants as well as exploring the volcanic scenery and caves. We also embraced a bit of culture including César Manrique's house and his other sculptural works around Lanzarote which were stunning.
My trusty Canon 1100D came along with us too and I made the most of having less of a beach holiday (lying on beaches isn't amazingly comfortable when you can't lie on your front or your back) and more of a sand-free exploring holiday, taking lots of snaps around the place. I'm ashamed to say I hardly got it out of the automatic settings but I am still learning and didn't want to miss out on capturing memories by having it set to the wrong F-stop or ISO setting. I have promised myself that I will find a course soon and learn how to use my new toy properly. Preferably in time for Junior's arrival (we'll see)!

In other news, I am now a whole year older as it was my birthday on May 19th. Had a lovely time celebrating in Sheffield before heading to Sussex to see family and friends and then to Lanzarote for our last child-free holiday! Photos to come of the bump abroad but here are a couple of my lovely birthday presents :)
I haven't had today off as I've been busy catching up with card orders. Getting there so the waiting time should soon be less again. I am getting bump ache though from leaning over my cutting mat. Anyone got any tips for comfortable working?!
